Are you passionate about Magento, just like we are? Then, here’s good news for you. Magento is back with a new release- Magento 2.4.0!

Magento has always fed us with new releases from time to time. While the fact to notice is, these releases surprise us with not just one, but a bunch of new features every time.

Being a certified Magento Partner, we are more than happy to share the amazing Magento 2.4.0 features with you. Let’s get started!

Security, Quality & Performance Magento 2.4.0 includes more than 30 security fixes and platform security improvements.

Default Two-factor authentication (2FA): In Magento 2.4.0, 2FA is implemented on Magento admin accounts, Magento.com user accounts, and Cloud SSH. The 2FA is enabled by default on admin accounts and cannot be disabled. You get an option to secure the Magento.com account from non-permitted users that might use the account for wrong purposes, while multi-factor authentication (MFA) is provided for Magento Commerce Cloud for SSH access.

Template filter strict mode is enabled by default, while Data rendering for UI data providers is disabled for better security and protection from malicious users.

Platform Quality
Magento 2.4 release has come up with safer and more automated updates with the Composer update plugin that streamlines the upgrade process and protects against overwriting customizations and makes changes that must be made to the root project.

A list of enhancements has been made to the GraphQL in the Magento 2.4 release. It comes with advanced features like:

  • Inventory In-store pickup.
  • Fetch a list of categories that match a specified filter.
  • Feature to add all the products from a previous order to the cart.

For enhanced security and performance, Magento 2.4 introduces PHP 7.4, Elasticsearch 7.6.x, MySQL 8.0, MariaDB 10.4, and Laminas Project support. These support features are to ensure long-term compliance and improved performance.

Performance and Scale Redis optimization: Magento 2.4 release has brought multiple optimizations to Redis. These enhancements minimize the number of queries performed on every Magento request for improved performance. Performance features have been super-advanced so that the web pages load 43% faster than before, even in peak traffic times.
